Main Entry: Development Office
38 Items

Biographical/Historical Note:
The Office of Development and Alumni was created in 1961 by Capt. William R. Brewster. M.C. Paget was the first director (1961-1968) and Bob Ballentine was the first Public Relations Director in the 1960s, when he initiated the publications. The Office has been responsible for Alumni affairs, publications, annual giving, and other organized fundraising efforts, such as Capital Campaigns. Over decades the office underwent a number of reorganizations with numerous directors, systems, and programs. John Anderson became Vice President for Development in 1990. The Annual Giving program became more organized, better publicized, and more aggressive under Anderson after 1990. By 2000, the successful Annual Giving program was raising over one million dollars.

Scope and Content:
Arranged in chronological order, the collection is divided into two groups- Annual Reports and Reports to Donors. The Annual Reports are colorful printed brochures covering years, 1986-1988, 1991-1999. These reports (26 copies) describe the basic balance sheet of the school, with emphasis on annual giving campaign money. The Report to Donors (9 copies) cover only 1985, 1988, and 1998. These were originally printed and staple-bound and listed the names of all annual giving donors and the categories of their gifts. The 1998 report is photocopy only. Also included are two annual giving pamphlets from 1991 and 1996. The 1991 pamphlet announces the Lucile and John C. Woodward Society.
